in the household, payouts to dividends, acceleration into this year. >> becky and jim, who have been doing amazing work on capitol hill, did talk to grover norquist, a bit of a rematch after cramer's appearance a couple of weeks ago with grover norquist. >> obama personally moved it out two years, because he didn't want to raise taxes and damage the economy, because he said the economy was weak. the economy's not strong now. so the argument to raise taxes now is not any better than it was two years ago. i think there's a real danger we could end up with some damaging tax increases, and nothing to show for it. >> jim, quick reaction to that exchange between you and grover? >> there was a lot of positives here. grover wants to put cameras in the room. when i cover the florida legislature, how many years ago was that, they put cameras in the room. you know what happened, a lot of people started making a lot of sense. so i think that grover makes some good points, because you wouldn't get this kind of rancor. >> jim, good to have you down there. we need you down there today. we want to draw your atten
